BUCKS LAKE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION – IMPORTANT

If you are an Association member, you have likely received an email from our President, Bill Nicholau, today, July 3. It is important that you read it carefully. Then open and read the attached statement from our Treasurer, Renee Russell.

BOTH STATEMENTS ARE FACTUAL AND TRUE.

SNOW? BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR…

We got 40″ at the cabin yesterday, Thursday. We did learn that the new Ranger will handle it, a pleasant surprise. And the power is still on. At least for now….

FINALLY, SNOW, PART 4

The forecast was for 9″ here. At 11:20 am, we have over a foot. About time….

And this is an intro to Wednesday through Saturday. The Weather Service has predicted a total of 54″ for those days. Stay tuned…..

SNOW? PART 3

I guess no surprise. There is not much left, and that is going fast. People with 4X4 are starting to drive as far as the fire station. (The road is still posted closed to wheeled vehicles). Beyond that is iffy in a lot of spots.

So, lots of black pavement. No snow, even on the shoulders. Then, in spots, deep enough right now to stick a wheeled vehicle. Snowmobiles, no way. Skiis, not much hope there, more like hiking from snow to snow for brief ski’s.

A week from now, we should have a much better picture of just what the conditions will be going forward.

And then there is just the possibility that winter might yet return……..

SNOW ? PART TWO

Yes, we have it now. We expected, and wanted, two feet. We only have about one foot, but it is SOMETHING, and it is still snowing (at 11:30 on the 25th). Looks like an extended dry period beginning Friday, let’s hope for more after that…..

SNOW?

All the snow is gone. This feels a lot like Oregon at 3000 feet. Wet. Green. Maybe a dusting on Wednesday morning. I know Global Warming is supposed to be a Chinese hoax, but don’t tell that to Bucks Lake. We should have 6 – 8 feet of snow right now. If our 15+ inches of rain in November had been our traditional snow, think of where we would be right now……

But, that was 10 years ago, before the Chinese screwed things up……

NEW YEARS AT THE LAKE?

Well, why not? The county has all the main roads plowed, with a few icy spots. You would need 4 wheel drive on the cabin access roads, but no weather is expected until late next week. A rare chance for people who don’t recreate on the snow to be at Bucks for the holiday…..

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2017. A WIND “EVENT”

In other parts of this country, our Saturday wind event would have had a name. If we were in Southern California, we all would have been burned in a fire storm. For all of the day, the lake looked like San Francisco Bay on a very windy day…, all whitecaps, and about four foot waves.

It was actually frightening, as the trees began to go down. Night fell, and the roar of the constant wind was punctuated by the sound of trees falling. You knew that one of them could easily hit your roof, and that would be it…

The entire electrical system on Mt Ash was trashed. The west end of Mile High Rd. also hammered, with 7 large trees falling in a jumble on one lot and blocking the road. What kind of wind gust caused that? Amazing, scary, perhaps terrifying.

Here’s a shout out to PG&E. I know we love to trash them. But, on Sunday morning, they flooded the area with crews and equipment. And did all their work with a great attitude. Thanks, guys……

The power is mostly back on, on Monday evening. However, there was so much damage that only the primary system is back on. If the service drop to your cabin was severed, you must make a specific request for repair. Have one of your recent bills available and locate your account number. You must have that. Call the 800 number on the bill and state the problem. You will probably have to endure a “relationship”with any number of AI assistants, but it will get the job done.

The rest of the state has no idea what we have just endured. If our storm had hit, for instance, South Lake Tahoe, it would be national news. We know what we have survived. That is enough.
